Global pitbulls: the US military mission to support corporate colonialism

This is tragically our planet’s reality…

An excerpt:

“I spent thirty three years and four months in the Marine Corps. During that period I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.”
With its 800 bases in 80 countries, the US’s global military domination is often seen as an altruistic exercise to ensure world peace and harmony, writes Pete Dolack. It is, of course, the opposite: the essential underpinning of the US’s predatory economic power, always ready to strike down any challenge to the rights and privileges of its corporate conquerors and financial oligarchy.
